7:03am
a man mow hadean is in gaza. good morning to you. >>. >> good morning, matt. what a difference 24 hours make. yesterday, the palestinian people in gaza woke up to the news that a truce could be signed by the end of the day. on wednesday morning, they woke up to the sound of more shelling, a higher death toll and the news that a cease-fire could be reached. it's not happening any time soon. >> there were talks of peace late into the night. but in gaza, it was anything but quiet. while factions traded fire, secretary of state hillary clinton arrived to the region to broker a truce. meeting today with mahmoud abbas and last night with israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. >> the united states will work with our partners toward an outcome that bolsters security for the people of israel. improved conditions for the people of gaza and move toward a comprehensive peace. >> while the sides talk peace, gaza remained a war zone.
7:04am
daylight revealed the scope of israel's destruction. this it claimed were the hamas terror hubs. this government building was the intended target. there was no one here at the time of the strike. instead, it's the regular people who live like this one behind me that are paying the ultimate price. it's what israel calls collateral damage. >> it's forced thousands of palestinian to turn to u.n. schools turned into makeshift shelters like this one. factions remain defiant. >> speaking about the cease-fire, boom, they're shooting off. >> israel warned it's prepared to invade gaza. for now, it's relying on the superior air power. overnight it struck tens of targets including this key bridge, effectively cutting gaza in half. while the rockets and missiles fly and efforts are in full swing, still anyone's guess
7:05am
which way this war will go. >> secretary of state clinton has arrived in cairo egypt and met with president mohammed morse i. the chances of them reaching a deal about the issues surrounding gaz are are extremely unlikely. they're looking to avert a ground war. >> thank you very much. here's savannah. >> matt, thanks. meantime, black friday is two days away now. the most important day of the year foror the nation's retaile. trouble may be brewing for one of the biggest ones of all. walmart. mark potter is live in doral, florida this morning. mark, good morning. >> good morning, savannah. about a thousand protests are scheduled around the country and walmart is trying to stop them. most of them will be happening on the busiest shopping day of the year. >> we are the workers! the mighty walmart workers!
7:06am
>> a few of the protests have begun. >> this one tuesday out outside a walmart near los angeles. store workers and stoare complaining about hours and retaliati retaliation. >> the wages are low. sometimes we have to rely on family help. >> they're very good with the prices. but the prices are coming out our pockets. >> some are upset about working on thanksgiving when walmart begins special sales at 8:00 p.m. >> they say they care about associates and want what's best for them. because if it was, we wouldn't be working on thanksgiving. >> walmart workers who are nonunion plan to hold strikes and protests at a thousand locations around the country on black friday, the day after thanksgiving. their goal is not to shut down stores but to inform customers about how they are treated by their employers. >> black friday is one of the
7:07am
most important days in retail. it's really the super bowl of all retail. the walmart employees know this. that's why they chose black friday for the pinnacle of these protests. >> in a statement, walmart says, our stores will be operating normally on black friday and our customers will see nothing unusual when they shop. it went on to say in response to complaints, the fact is, our pay an benefits plan are as good or better than our retail competitors, including those that are unionized. to try to stop the protest, walmart has filed a complaint with the national labor relations board claiming a union that doesn't represent walmart workers is illegally involved in the picketing. >> now, a worker group also filed a complaint against walmart alleging that walmart is being threatening. the labor board calls it a complex issue and it will be tomorrow before it decides whether to try to stop the protests. savannah in. >> mark potter in florida, thank
7:08am
you. duncan mcnaughton is the marketing officer. sir, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. thanks for having us on. happy thanksgiving to you and your team. >> you too. >> why do you expect widespread picketing on friday? >> savannah, we do not. we're confident about a great shopping experience for our customer. we'll have a million walmart associates serving our customers tomorrow at 8:00, 10:00 and again 5:00 friday morning. what you're seeing in the media and in the news is a small group of walmart associates and a select number of stores and we'll have 4,000 stores open, ready to go. as you may know. our stores are always open on thanksgiving day. >> as you say, this is a small groupment then again, the company filed a complaint to stop the protests. that does indicate the company takes this fairly seriously, correct? >> savannah, i think the key is that there's a small group of walmart associates complemented
7:09am
by a number of nonwalmart associates that are paid by the union and we just want to make sure we have a great event for our customers. that's what we're prepared to do. 8:00 thursday night, we have a great event, broad assortment of products. 10:00 for the first time ever, savannah. this is the super bowl of retail. we will guarantee in stock three great product. if our customers are in line at our store, they're going to get the product that night or it will be in that store before christmas. >> let's stay on topic for one minute. if someone pickets who is an employee of your store, will they face retaliation? will they be fired or see their hours cut down in. >> savannah, we have a really open culture. it's all about listening to our associates and based in integrity with respect for the individual. our operators and our store managers always want to listen to the concerns of our associates and we do that all the time. >> no ramifications if somebody protests?
7:10am
>> we'll treat each case individually, savannah. >> duncan mcnaughton, thank you for being on the show this morning. we appreciate it. once again, here's matt. meantime, millions are getting away today for the thanksgiving holiday. that means the roads are going to be packed. our jeff rossen is on i-95. jeff, how does it look out there? my family wouldn't let me drive and talk at the same time. probably smartly. we have our driver behind the wheel. i'm not bitter. just disappointed. we're on i-95 in a bit of traffic. some of this is heading into new york. a lot of people are traveling for thanksgiving. in fact, this is the busiest travel day today. 43.6 million americans will travel. 90% of us will travel today by car believe it or not. that's more than last year. the average distance traveled, if you want factoids to impress your friends at thanksgiving, about 588 miles. there's also a very interesting
7:11am
issue here in the northeast. rental cars almost impossible to find because thousands of them were flooded by hurricane sandy. if you're trying to get a rental car, probably didn't have much luck. as far as air travel, good news, it's down from last year, so the airports will be a little emptier. when you're shopping for airfare, that's down as well. about 11%. the average price for a ticket within the u.s. today is $188. finally, buses, cruise ships and trains, 1.3 million americans traveling that way today. so here we are on i-95. we're hoping to get back to you matt. i hear you're cooking dinner. >> you might want to head in the other direction. thank you very much. good to see you. >> you're cooking but he's not invited? >> don't want my cooking, that's all. >> let's get a check of the top stories. natalie morales is at the news desk. >> good morning savannah and
7:12am
matt and everyone. a last-ditch effort to save hostess brands has failed. the second largest union broke down late tuesday. the cake maker heads to bankruptcy court today to let a judge decide what the company can liquidate. there may be hopes for twinkies as other companies could snap up the popular brand. the taliban is taking responsibility for a -- two suicide bombers were stopped by afghan guards in the neighborhood packed with foreign embassies. the two guards who foiled the attack were killed. officials in india say the only surviving gunman from mumbai was executed today. he was one of ten gunmen who attacked a train station, jewish center and hotels. the rampage claimed 166 lives. now, let's head to wall street. >> good morning, nootly. after intense focus on the
7:13am
fiscal cliff negotiations, the markets could put the spotlight back on the european debt crisis amid a deadlock in greek debt talks. it's going to be a quiet day. it's the day before thanksgiving. u.s. economic data is not yet on the -- consumer sentiment data, jobless claims and an outlook indicator to give us guidance for the markets today. >> mandy drury, have a happy thanksgiving. >> you too. >> thanks. this could be the best night on the basketball court ever. jack taylor obliterated the ncaa record last night when he scored and scored and scored again. 138 points in a single game. making 52 of 108 attempted shots. the previous scoring record was set back in 1954 with 113 points. the feat is so impressive even the pros are tipping hats with kevin durant tweeting, jack taylor, you deserve a shot of jack daniel's after that performance.
7:14am
not going to help him out in his performance ahead. we'll talk to him, though, coming up shortly. which is fantastic. matt, savannah and al. >> his arm must hurt. >> it was tweeted, that game was crazy and insane. >> guess who is via skype. the man himself, jack taylor. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> first question, nonsports question. are your arms tired at this point? >> you know, my legs i think are more tired. my last couple of shots i started cramping up. i definitely need my rest. >> i've got a couple of questions for you, jack? what's the most points you had scored prior to this in a single game? >> prior to this, i scored 48 points in a game in high school. >> just 90 points less. >> was there a little issue with defense in this game? >> well, what we did was press the whole game. we were able to keep the tempo of the game up and down and we were able to force 49 turnovers,
7:15am
which allowed me to get more shots off. >> now, i mean, at what point in this game did the record start to pop into your head? >> there was a point in the second half where i hit seven or eight threes in a row. i knew something special was going on and that i was probably pretty close to the record. >> i don't know if you're a twitter guy. we read a couple tweets from kobe bryant and kevin durant. how surreal is that? >> i actually had to create a twitter. i didn't have a twitter before. >> what's your handle in. >> jump on the bandwagon. >> jack, what did you do to celebrate afterwards? >> honestly, i've been doing interviews. i haven't been doing much celebrating. just been doing interviews. >> i can tell you, jack, you're going to face serious double coverage in your next game. get ready for it. >> i think so, too. >> congratulations. great accomplishment.
7:16am
you have the record. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> good to see you. we'll turn to mr. roker with the weather. >> no severe weather to talk about. but we have a lot of fog in the midwest. that may impact air travel from michigan and wisconsin down into missouri. light winds clearing skies. we've got a moist air mass and upper level surface ridge. that is causing a lot of fog. fog advisories from duluth down to springfield. so airport delays today, the two biggest we're talking about chicago with 1/8 of a mile visibility, st. louis almost zero visibility, milwaukee and green bay with low visibility as well. because those are such big hubs, we'll probably see airport delays through the mid-morning and early afternoon hours. that's your latest weather. we'll get you your local forecast right after this. their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors.
7:17am
and do our part for the businesses that do so much for us. on november 24th, let's get out and shop small. good wednesday morning to you. a lot of people heading to work. a lot of people heading out of town for travel. of course, thanksgiving is tomorrow. you will notice the highway's nice and slick. let's look at the radar. we don't have a whole lot of action left over. what we do have is clearing quickly as i zoom in for you and stop the clock. you can see mostly dry con is did across the greater bay area but high pressure is forcing that moisture to the surface. r latest weather. now here's savannah. >> al, thank you. it was a shocking scene last year, a teenage girl in terror after having what appeared to be a bomb strapped to her neck. luckily, it was a fake, and now the man who did that to her will be spending years behind bars.
7:18am
our erica hill is with an update. erica, good morning to you. >> savannah, good morning. really seemed something more like a hollywood movie. an 18-year-old woman spent 18 hours thinking she was going to die and now the man responsible is going to jail. >> it's really all over. >> reporter: australian teen madeline pulver expressing relief after the sentencing of a man who strapped a fake bomb around her next in a failed extortion bid. >> i'm pleased with today's outcome and that i can now look to a future without his name being linked to mine. >> reporter: former investment banker paul peters was sentenced to 13 and a half years in prison after breaking into the family's luxury home in 2011. maddy was at home alone studying. dressed in a ski mask and armed with a black baseball bat which this surveillance tape shows him purchasing, peters linked a
7:19am
chain with a small black box around maddy's neck. before fleeing peters left information with maddy saying the black box was full of explosives and leaving instructions on how to transfer money. it took ten terrifying hours to determine there were no explosives. >> moments ago we have secured the release of the young lady. >> reporter: incident led to a worldwide manhunt. peters was eventually found in lexington, kentucky and extradited back to australia. peters had claimed the hoax was the result of a delusion brought on by drinking and depression, but the judge ruled, quote, the offender was aware of the nature and quality of his acts. afterwards the pulver family expressed their gratitude to police and to australia's court system >> i realize it is going to take quite some time to come to terms with what happened, but today was important because now the legal process is over. >> reporter: there is still a question of while maddy, while some court documents say paul
7:20am
peters once worked for a company with ties to the family, peters never indicated why maddy was the target or if it was a random act. >> outrage over a photo taken at arlington national cemetery. some are suggesting some pretty harsh consequences. we're back with that story in a moment, but first this is "today" on nbc.
7:21am
7:22am
still ahead, an etiquette expert puts us to the test when it comes to issues that might arise during thanksgiving dinner. and superstar pitbull is here live in concert, and the crowd is ready to dance, but first on a wednesday morning we've got a check of your local news and weather. and always very curious. one day george got an important letter... he's built a rocket ship to travel into space. girl: google, how far is earth to the moon?
7:23am
google voice response: moon is 238,900 miles... mother vo: the great moment had come... ...3...2...1. ♪

7:26am
san jose police on the scene of a deadly hit and run. that is where bob rydell is. what can you tell us? what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning, jon. we're here at the intersection of allen rock and jackson in san jose. we're waiting for the coroner to arrive to complete their part of the investigation and remove the body, as you can see, it is still in the middle of the road. it appears this person was carrying a backpack of some sort, perhaps trying to cross the street when they were hit and killed. this was a hit and run. police are looking for that driver. the only description they have is the dark colored vehicle heading wet bound on allen rock. we understand at least one witness who flagged down a bus, offer help, was able to identify the car. route 70 by the way is being rerouted. a investigation will focus on the road conditions at the time. it was just after 6:00 this happened so it was still dark out and most likely raining at the time. you can see, it's been raining off and on. so whether weather conditions played a role in the accident will be part of the
7:27am
investigation, also determine how much information the witness will be able to give because it was so hard to see at the time. reporting live, "nbc bay area news." line 522 and 23 have been also rerouted so be aware of that. right now, christina loren is looking out for all of us heading into the holiday. >> wet conditions out there. you really want to travel cautiously. what i can tell you is the bulk of the moisture concentrated in the south bay. showers are clearing quickly. as that area of low pressure races out. high pressure is moving in. compressing the moisture moving over. we are getting very thick mist and drizzle. 1 to 2 hour delays out of sfo. likely getting about 50 minute delay out of oakland with the rain around and 5 to 10 minutes longer than usual. your seven day outlook in just a few minutes. let's look at the drive with mike. >> quick look at north 280. wet soupy conditions kicking the water off the roadway.
7:28am
maps will show you through san jose, slowing for 280, 85 and 101. >> all right, mike, thank you very much. we'll be back in one half hour with another local update.
7:29am
7:30 now on this wednesday
7:30am
morning, november 21st, 2012, the day before thanksgiving. there is no rest for the man getting set to take over our concert stage. pitbull has a new album, new hit single, and he will perform it for us in just about an hour. i don't know how you guys get into the thanksgiving spirit, but i do by listening to pitbull and dancing outside on the plaza. good morning, everyone. coming up in this half hour. >> that's right. the man who entertained kids for years as the voice of elmo resigns under pressure. could he now face criminal charges? we'll have the lest on that, and then eat this, not that, the thanksgiving edition. would you gobble up 24 nilla watchers at one setting? >> of course. >> coming up, the ultimate killjoy. dave is here to tell us all the joy out of your thanksgiving meal. >> it's one day. let us have that. >> one meal, one day.
7:31am
>> and if you don't have a plate of twinkies back there, i don't know what to say. and, of course, this time of year, people are asking you what are you thankful for, most people say friends and family but what about the less obvious choices, like the song "call me maybe" or the twinkie or will and kate. what? >> and psy. >> a bit of a hodgepodge. >> a non-obvious look at things to be thankful for. >> on that note for real we'd like you to share with us what you are thankful for over this thanksgiving holiday. tweet us with the hashtag whyi'mthankful. let's begin this half hour outraging people on the internet. a woman took a very disrespectful picture of herself on a trip to arlington national cemetery and then posted it on facebook. natalie is here with more on that. natalie, good morning. >> one of the dangers of social media. you do something stupid, you put it online, of course it could
7:32am
have big consequences. thousands of tourists visit arlington cemetery every year to pay their respects to this country's fallen soldiers, but last month 30-year-old lindsey stone photographed herself doing something very different. >> it's bad. it's just a shame. >> horrible. what is wrong with this world? >> reporter: in this picture lindsey can be seen flipping off the too many of the unknowns and pretending to scream in front of a sign requesting silence and respect. >> oh, i was appalled. i mean, it's not what lindsey is about or i'm all about or this family is about. >> stone's father speaking to our affiliate whdh in boston apologized for the photo posted on her daughter's facebook page as a joke. >> beside herself. no idea it would go where it went. >> reporter: to lindsey's surprise the picture went viral and even a facebook page called
7:33am
fire lindsey stone. lindsey and her co-worker have been placed on leave at the assisted living home live, inc where they both work and he re-leased this statement. this photograph in no way reflects the opinions, thoughts or feelings of the life organization. lindsey and her friend who took the picture also released a statement saying we sincerely apologize for all the pain we caused by posting the picture. we never meant to disrespect any of the people nationwide who have served this country and defended our freedom so valiantly. but these veterans in hyannis, massachusetts don't care if it was a joke or not. to them it's offensive either way. >> pretty disrespectful, and stupid. people do stupid things in this country every day. that's one of them right there, for sure. >> and in their statement lindsey and her co-worker add that had they recognize the photo was distasteful and ignorant. how that affects their work remains to be seen. both are now on unpaid leave.
7:34am
they are releasing a statement saying they plan to have an appropriate response to the circumstances, matt. what do you think should happen here. >> considering the fact she lives in an assisted center, probably with veterans, i would imagine, would you think you would have that compassion, so it's -- >> of all places, arlington national cemetery. people who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country, and you show disrespect by taking the picture and then you put it online. >> incredibly stupid. >> i think she won't be having a tale. >> a real cautionary tale for a lot of kids and adults out there that there's big ramifications. >> and huge consequences by the fact that we're talking about it and now the whole world knows. >> do something for shock value, and, you know what? you get -- >> pay the consequences. i think she will have to go out there and do something really good for her community to show that her heart is in the right place. we'll follow that story. >> mr. rocker is here with a check of the weather. >> let's start you off and see what you've got this half hour.
7:35am
temperature xwarturdepartures, temperatures in the 70s, temperatures 30 to 40 degrees above normal. rest of the highs around the u.s., 30s and 40s in the pacific northwest, a little below normal. that cold air will make its way across the country. record highs in the central plains as we just showed you. up and down the eastern seaboard temperatures up and down as well and hit or miss thunderstorms down through the 7:35 on one of the busiest travel days of the year. this is not what you want to hit the roadways under. we still have showers coming down. for the most part, it's the fog, generating a steady mist or drizzle along the peninsula. as you can see, showers are clearing out. you still have a few spotty light cells. the whole system is pulling out. temperatures today with enough sunshine coming in later. 65 in gilroy. seven-day outlook shows you we u get itfor thanksgiving. the weather
7:36am
channel 24/7 or weather.com online. savannah? >> all right, al. thanks. now to the resignation of a man who brought elmo to life on "sesame street." kevin clash stepped down amid shocking new allegations about his personal room. washing, if you have little ones in the room be careful about watching this one. nbc's chris jansing has more on this one. good morning to you. >> good morning. such a sad story on so many levels. kevin clack transformed elmo from a niner "sesame street" character to a superstar of children's television and a major money-maker, but this morning he's facing at least one lawsuit and lawyers for an alleged victim have contacted criminal authorities. for 28 years kevin clash was the voice and heart of "sesame street's" iconic elmo, but on tuesday he resigned saying in a statement personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work "sesame street" is doing, and can i not allow it to go on any longer.
7:37am
and this morning clash is a defendant in a $5 million lawsuit that charges he trolled gay telephone chat line rooms to meet and have sex with underage boys. 24-year-old cecil singleton claims his sexual relationship with clash began nearly a decade ago when he was 15 and clash 43. >> in retrospect, it has occurred to me as an adult how truly inappropriate my relationship with kevin was. >> reporter: he says he was motivated to come forward after a 24-year-old made a similar allegation last week, though he later recanted. >> since i found out that there were other people or victims in a similar circumstance i felt very guilty. >> reporter: sesame workshop released a statement saying none of us, especially kevin, want anything to divert our attention from our focus on serving as a leading educational organization. unfortunately, the controversy surrounding ketch's personal life has become a distraction.
7:38am
it's a shocking turn of events for clash who just last year was the subject of a documentary, "being elmo, a puppeteer's journey." in 1996 the tickle-me-elmo doll featuring his voice became the most sought after holiday toys in history. now it's the end of a storied career clash described lovingly just months ago. >> it's so wonderful to be a part of a show that really starts a child. >> big financial aspect to this, too. one expert estimates wholesale sales of "sesame street" toys total $75 million a year and elmo-related product account for 55% to 75% of that, but a branding expert says with an iconic brand like elmo, people are more likely to rally behind it in a crisis rather than reject it. >> so identified with that character. chris, thanks for the story. appreciate it. still ahead, we're going to lighten things up a little bit and tell you how to deal with all the awkward situations that
7:39am
